I wanted to see how many hours of use it really had. Since I'm in Canada it only came with the small Smart TV remote. I tried inputting the Mute 7-3-7-ENTER code to look at the MRT value, with a old RCA universal remote & my Yamaha receiver remote. I can't seem to get the code to work. Looks like the TV was updated in the store cause it has the latest firmware of 1120 on it.
Any ideas? Thanks.
Order a regular remote off of ebay or Amazon. They're not that expensive.
